Kingsland AS, the designer and manufacturer of Kingsland equestrian apparel and horse gear, has signed a sponsor contract with the current No.2 on the FEI World Individual Dressage Rankings, Carl Hester from Great Britain.
In his competition career as a senior, Carl Hester has competed in three Olympics, one World Equestrian Games, four European Championships and has reached one World Cup Final. He has amassed a record of 52 National Dressage Titles and been British Dressage National Champion six times.
In 2011 Carl Hester was part of the GB team that won a historic team gold medal at the 2011 European Championships in Rotterdam, as well as achieving individual silver medals in the Grand Prix Special and Grand Prix Freestyle with the exciting Uthopia.
Carl Hester is now about to start to compete for a place on Team GB for the 2012 London Olympics.
"I am proud that we have signed Carl Hester for Kingsland Dressage. Carl Hester is in his right element riding in Kingsland Dressage apparel and he gives the right image for this classic dressage line," says Sølvi Ann Waldeland Aas, Head of Kingsland Dressage Collection.
Waldeland Aas added “England is an important market for us and with the focus on our new Kingsland Dressage Collection we are proud that we have so many fantastic ambassador riders like Carl Hester, Andreas Helgstrand, Edward Gal and Hans Peter Minderhoud on our team. We believe they will be on top of the result lists both for the coming Olympics in London and in the years to come."
"We are delighted and proud to have Carl Hester as our ambassador for the most prestigious dressage collection available. How wonderful to have the best, to represent the best," says Nicolette Gidley-Wright, Sales Director of SlipQuiz Ltd.
"I am thrilled to have been asked by Kingsland to represent the brand. I feel it is an exciting collection with style and quality needed for a premium brand and I am delighted to be a part of their development," says Carl Hester.
